Ice Cube: 'Dre Abandoned Me'

Rap veteran ICE CUBE was forced to drop plans to include a collaboration with DR. DRE on his new album because the superproducer just disappeared halfway through recording.
The hip-hop star had previously revealed he had reunited with his former N.W.A. bandmate and had hit the studio to record a track for his upcoming project I Am The West - but the songs were never completed and Ice Cube has failed to reach Dre ever since.
He tells Rap-Up.com, "Dre went M.I.A. (missing in action), I don't know where he at. If ya'll find him, tell him to give me a call."
But Cube isn't the only old pal Dre has reportedly turned his back on - Snoop Dogg suffered too.
He continues, "It's cool, he went M.I.A. on Snoop too. Everybody wanna work with him, so it's up to him on who he wants work with, who he don't wanna work with. We did the records, but we didn't finish them. So, I felt like I didn't wanna put them out unless they was finished. Or, what's the use? I'll get 'em finished sooner or later, and put 'em out."
And Cube admits the relationship he has shared with Dre in recent years is a far cry from their tight friendship during their N.W.A. days in the late '80s: "It's a distant relationship. It's been distant ever since I left N.W.A., so I don't expect that to change.
"We all went out separate ways back then, we was youngsters. We're grown now. That is what it is. It reminds me of, like, somebody I hung out (with) in high school a lot, but now that you grown, you talk to every now and then. That's kind of how I look at it."
